This book examines the gendered structures of global financial markets. It maps out crucial economic, cultural and socio-historical processes which excluded women from (formal) financial activities in Britain and then on a global scale. The author argues that, with the contemporary deepening of financial markets, there has been a resultant shift as women are targeted world-wide as an emerging market for credit and finance, which has crucial implications for increased levels of insecurity and risk.
